Hosted Event  |  NFWS May Meeting and Demonstration by Carol Carter

Thursday, May 18, 2017, 7 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

NFWS May Meeting features our Spring Workshop Artist Carol Carter. She is a long time resident of St. Louis, where she earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from Washington University. Long admired in the St. Louis area, she earned national recognition in 2002 when her work was featured on the cover of New American Paintings magazine. She has had solo exhibitions in Ecuador, Norway, France, and USVI.

Water is an enduring presence in Carol Carterʼs paintings. Having grown up in Florida, she sees water as an evocative backdrop, resonant in contrasts that illuminate the human condition. Using vibrant, saturated colors, she plays upon nature in images of swimmers, lush landscapes, insightful portraits and botanical studies.
Ms. Carter has been visiting artist in Oslo and Stavanger, Norway, in 1999, 2001, and 2003. The Schmidt Art Center in Belleville, IL held a solo exhibition in 2006. She was invited to be in the National Watercolor Biennial at Parkland College in February. She is featured artist in the Herstory invitational at SWIC in Granite City, IL. A retrospective of her work will be held at the Turner Center for the Arts in Valdosta, GA opening this March. Different Strokes, by Quartro Publishing, in London, England is featuring her work.

Ms. Carter's work is represented in many public and private art collections, including those of Citicorp, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Arjomani Paper, Leonard Slatkin, Price University, and Utah State University.
